Description

With its groundbreaking TagTile® system, KUBO introduces the concepts of coding in an easy, hands-on, screen-free way so that children can become creators, innovators, and designers of our future technologies.

With KUBO, students piece together icon-based tiles to create instructions, or code, for their robot to execute. The solution requires no additional technology and is so simple you can be up and running in fewer than five minutes and well on your way to introducing the basics of computational thinking.

This screen-free, hands-on solution provides everything you need to teach coding and computational thinking to students throughout elementary school. KUBO comes with free lesson plans, quick-start guides, and video tutorials and develops skills from basic to advanced levels.

The KUBO Coding++ 4-Pack Bundle provides a total of 126 TagTiles to use with your KUBO robot and activity maps. The tiles, which snap together like the pieces of a puzzle, allow control of basic movements, time, speed, distance, and direction. Students have endless possibilities to develop increasingly complex programs using functions, subroutines, loops, if-then statements, variables, and events.

The KUBO Coding++ 4-Pack Bundle is intended to be shared by eight to 12 students and is perfect for whole-class activities or rotational center-based learning.

“I am so proud of our students and their work with the KUBO. KUBO has enabled students to think deeper and problem-solve when their code isn’t working. I am especially proud of how KUBO robots have improved self-esteem, peer collaboration, and self-confidence in my students’ lives.”

– Anne Marie Glawe, GATAS & BrainBooster teacher, Springfield Elementary, Greenwood, South Carolina

“Teachers will be amazed how easily and quickly students learn to work KUBO. Through exploration, students grow their excitement for using KUBO.”

– Natalie Vanderbeck, K-5 teacher, George Nettels Elementary, Pittsburg, Kansas

“I have used KUBO with my students in kindergarten to third grade. I use it to introduce coding topics like sequencing, algorithms, and debugging. It is a great hands-on way for students to visualize these concepts before they start coding on the computers!”

– Tammera Laughlin, elementary media services teacher and librarian, Circleville City Schools, Ohio
